  Purpose

Endometrial ablation in women with dysfunctional uterine bleeding using second generation ablation devices is a common widespread therapeutic approach. This study aims to prove that amenorrhoea rates using Novasure are higher than those observed in microwave endometrial ablation, one year following intervention.
